Nick Kyrgios is currently sidelined due to injury, but that hasn't stopped him from creating controversies with his online comments.
Kyrgios has been struggling with injuries since the start of the year, and has played just one match this season, which he lost. He withdrew from all of the Grand Slams of the 2023 season, the latest being the US Open.
The former Wimbledon runner-up recently reacted to a ranking post on social media. The post pointed out how there is only one male player who is in the top 50 of both singles and doubles, whereas there are more than 10 women players who meet that criterion.
Kyrgios, who is currently ranked outside the top 100 in both singles and doubles but was ranked as high as 22 and 13 in the respective categories last season, reacted to the post by bringing up his past accomplishments.
"Funny this stat didn’t exist last year when I was playing healthy 😂," he wrote on Twitter.
Tennis fans soon reacted to his comments and expressed their disappointment at the Australian.
"Its not all about youuuuu Nick!" one fan wrote.
Another fan commented that no one really cares about Kyrgios and his tennis.
"Cause nobody cares about you, honey," they wrote.
Other fans chose to remind him that not everything on internet was about him.
"not everything is about you Nick. believe it or not," one of them wrote.
